The Bacterial Foodborne Pathogens and Mycology Research Unit at USDA-NCAUR in Peoria, Illinois, has two postdoctoral associate positions available.
- The successful applicant will study comparative genomics of Fusarium in order to elucidate genetic mechanisms that have given rise to the current diversity and distribution of secondary metabolite and pathogenicity-related genes in the F. fujikuroispecies complex.
